Lise Deharveng

Lise Deharveng

Dr. Lise Deharveng started out as a student in Clermont-Ferrand and then in Paris (Ecole Normale Supérieure), where she discovered astrophysics. She is now a professor of physics and astrophysics at the Université de Provence and an astronomer at Observatoire de Marseille. She lives in Marseille where she enjoys the sea and the sun.

Her main interest is the interstellar medium, and more specifically regions of ionized hydrogen. Her recent work concerns abundance determinations in the Galaxy, and the formation of massive stars. She especially enjoys observing.

When she is not teaching physics or doing astronomy (or possibly cooking) she likes doing photography, embroidery, or reading. She is married to an astronomer and has two children, Patrick and Isabelle. Neither of them is an astronomer.
